"Review of "The Sado-Pacifist E.P.""

"Hellbent maverick of digital hardcore and journeyman organizer in the Seattle electronic scene, sporadik has inflicted the underworld of fringe electronic dance music with an energetic monstrosity of sound for years. sporadiks music has been praised far and wide for its innovative approach to rhythm and noise, traveling the same sonic superhighway as "rhythmic noise" artists like Hands, Ripit, Radium and Tarmvred en route to a skewed metropolitan aesthetic of structural experimentation. A familiar presence at clubs, events, and festivals throughout the US for the past seven years, founding member Brad P. has produced a fair amount of self-published work, but this newest E.P., featuring skilled turntableist T. McIntire, delivers a unique high energy barrage of effected sounds and sonic texture. Mixing swirling ambient interludes with growling base and pulse pounding beats, The Sado-Pacifist EP constitutes a fine example of creativity set in experimental mode. This special 12 inch vinyl is limited to 500 copies that will not be reprinted." 36 Invisibles- Noah Mickans - 36 Invisibles

"Willamette Week Review"

"Sporadik's electronic creatures evince intelligence and, yes, they may make you want to dance, but they're not IDM. Rather than being clever to the point of cuteness, more often than not these are mechanical hellbeasts, stomping and gnashing in a digital hardcore tantrum. Beats sound like industrial trash compactors with misfiring pistons. Synths crackle, claw and hiss. Samples get torn into distorted strips. It's occasionally crazed, but not chaotic--there is a sense of logic and order to this machine-made mayhem." Willamette Week, Portland -John Graham - Willamette Week - Portland, OR

"Review of the song "Love Theme to the End of the World""

"Admittedly, raw42 is hard to impress musically. not because we're snotty and elitist techno fanatics but because a lot of the electronic music we review just isn't all that great. so when a band comes along who impresses us, we tend to get all excited and happy. this is a happy and exciting moment. love theme to the end of the world is ass backwards. the track begins with the sonic soundscape in full frontal attack mode and then slowly digresses to minimalism. usually one has the climax at the end, after the musical build up but sporadik throw that obsolete concept out the window and dive in with a full fledged techno assault. classified as noise, this track is anything but. a barrage of effected sounds and metallic percussion provide the basis for this able monstrosity of sound. perhaps a little on the experimental side for some but definitely worth the trip. take it. since sporadik were kind enough to give me a happy and excited 4:22 minutes with this track, we're adding it to our goodness in music listing." raw42, UK - sal - Raw42.com
